There's drinkable -- water, good scotch, fine beer. All are quite drinkable. If you try to determine what are the qualities of a good drink, you are researching drinkableness. Now, some of those things are drinkable because they quench thirst -- water might well be best. Some might be best because they taste so good -- Hacker Pschorr Weiss. Some might be best because because they leave such a pleasant aftertaste -- fruit juices. Each of these has one of the kinds of drinkablenesses, and I suspect there are many more -- just as there ought to be undrinkablenesses, as well. Perhaps those would be called unimbibabilities, though, or even unpotablenesses. De gustibus non disputandum est!
